Surreal Wire Drawings of Eyes by Sophie Ryder

UK-based artist Sophie Ryder is a brilliant sculptor who works primarily with wire. Her large-scale wire drawings are like three-dimensional sketches that are simultaneously transparent and opaque. Her series of works depicting eyes are especially intriguing and captivating. They are, no pun intended, eye-catching.

The artist's piece, simply titled Eye, presents a realistic rendition of the human eye as though it were a charcoal illustration ripped from a sketchbook and suspended in the middle of a field. The artist's chosen medium and design aesthetic leave many holes in the sculptural work to seem almost like a window. It complements the landscape, adding a surreal effect.
